I think the problem of defining road legal is the problem, you will end up with race tyres with the 'competition only' mysteriously buffed off?

And other odd ball tyres like remoulds that may well present an easy route into a bespoke hill climb compound. I don't think that is something any one would want.

I've been there before lists were used in the Midland and took full advantage of the vague wording.

So how about a control tyre? Might be worth dropping a line to a few tyre suppliers.

And the easy way around that...is E marked tyres only.

Which is always the easiest solution for all. If there were some obscure tyres that were also deemed to be road legal and not E-marked, then these could be the basis for a list.

There is no vague or ambiguity about E marked. They either are or they arent.

No resorting to lists, no disputes, no arguments. And it also means people arent forced to buy tyres from lists they simply dont want, and whislt it is a extreme example, if a Veyron did turn up, which undoubtedly their tyres would not be on any lists...E marked would cover them too.

It would be a nonsense to turn away completely standard factory road cars from a road car category.
